Spring Run, PA_ Two Wheel Promotions has picked the 21st Annual Dirt Trackin' Trade & Car Show at the York Fairgrounds to release a 2004 schedule with more than 90 events at the Path Valley Speedway Park.

The Path Valley Season opens March 13 with Bug Day practice for 270 Sprints, 600 Sprints and the PA 305 Sprints from noon to 5 p.m. Bug Day for the V8 Street Stock, Mini Stock, 4-Cylinder Thunder, Legends, and Dwarfs is Sunday, March 14, and Bug Day for Go-Karts, Quads, Strictly Stocks and Cyclones is March 20, both also from noon to 5.

The first points race is Friday night, March 26, with gates open at 5 p.m. for the regular weekly 270 Sprints, 600 Sprints, Mini Stocks and 4-Cylinder Thunder Cars. Joining them opening night will be the V-8 Street Stocks and the Legends Cars.

The V-8 Street Stocks and Legends Cars will race every other Friday night and on the alternate weeks that they are off, the PA 305 Sprints and Dwarf Cars will race for a six-division race card every Friday night for eight classes of stock cars and sprints.

"Everyone wants to race at Path Valley, so to accommodate them and still finish our races at a reasonable time, we will again race the 305 Sprints, Legends, V-8 Street Stocks and Dwarf Cars every other week," Sr. Race Director John Winsett explained. "This worked well last year, in spite of our 32 rainouts, and if it's not broke we don't need to fix it." Winsett also noted, "We have no surprises and no significant tech or racing rules changes for 2004."

The complete schedule and rules are posted on the track's website at www.pathvalley.com and include minor safety changes for the Strictly Stock classes.

The first Saturday afternoon race for Burris karts and quads is March 27 with gates open at 10 a.m. and action on the track at noon. The track is again pleased to welcome Burris Racing as the general sponsor for up to 20 classes of karts and Path Valley is proud to again be named a Burris SpecTrak. Free grandstand admission for the karts and quads Saturday races returns in 2004.

The first race for the four-cylinder, six-cylinder and V-8 Strictly Stock cars is Saturday night, March 27. Joining the low budget stock cars this season will be the Cyclones that raced occasionally last season. "Interest in low-cost racing is growing in all areas and we expect full fields in all three classes this season," said business manager Vicki Flowers of Two Wheel Promotions of the former Junk Car class.

The first Flat Track race for AMA Motorcycles and Quads is Saturday night, April 3, and the bikes and quads will generally alternate with the Strictly Stocks every other Saturday night.

The AMA races headline the first big special event at Path Valley as Two Wheel Promotions again hosts the AMA North East Amateur National over the Memorial Day Weekend. The weekend kicks of Friday night, May 28 with the first monthly Fan Appreciation Night with $2 off the already low cost of grandstand admission. The Bike Rodeo returns at noon Saturday with the Short Track race Saturday night. Sunday is the AMA North East Amateur Nationals Half Mile race at the Williams Grove Speedway and Monday the bikes return to Path Valley for the TT (Tourist Trophy) leg of the three-race Nationals.

Youngsters are a special part of the Path Valley program and the track is one of the very few that allows supervised children into the pits. April 10 will see an Easter Egg hunt in the afternoon and a Candy Scramble for the kids that evening, and the popular Candy Scramble for at least two age groups will be a monthly feature at Path Valley. Foot races and bike races for the kids are being scheduled and all the youngsters are welcome at the Driver Appreciation Pig Roast Sept. 3 and 4. Business sponsors are still being welcomed for promotions at many of the track's special events.

With three races a weekend, the program reaches a climax with the Fourth Annual All Sprint National on Saturday, Sept. 25 and the Fourth Annual Four-Cylinder Shootout Sunday, Sept. 26. Through the end of October, Friday nights are scheduled as rain dates while AMA bikes or Strictly Stocks and Cyclones continue to race Saturday nights.

The Third Annual Go Kart Finale is set for Saturday night, Oct. 23, and Path Valley will again host the Pennsylvania Dirt Karters Series with their season opener May 15 and 16 and a regular series points race toward the Pennsylvania State Championships Sept. 12.

The Strictly Stocks and Cyclones are set to close the track on Saturday night, Oct. 30. A Nov. date for the Fifth Annual Award Banquet with Two Wheel Promotions will be announced later.

"Our schedule is a living thing, subject to changes to meet the needs of our racers and dedicated track workers, and if changes are needed we will notify everyone well in advance. We hope for another safe, exciting, enjoyable season in 2004," Jack Flowers of Two Wheel Promotions said.

It is five miles east from the Willow Hill Exit 14 of the PA Turnpike. The new phone number at the track is 717-349-7111.
